chave, I would follow the recipe for the shiitake mushrooms. Do not remove the gills unless stated & unless there is a specific purpose to do so for the recipe.

I would, however, clean the shrooms (of grit etc.) prior to slicing - either with a mushroom brush, paper towel, or swishing quickly in water & patting dry. For the most part, I only remove the gills if I am stuffing the mushroom. Hope that helps.
